Biography

Lørenskog, Norway (2006 – present)

Marit Elisabeth Larsen was born on July 1, 1983 in Lørenskog, Norway. She gained international fame during her teenage years as a member of the pop duo M2M with childhood friend Marion Raven. Larsen played the guitar and did half of the vocals and songwriting. After touring the world and producing two albums with hits such as Don’t Say You Love Me, Mirror Mirror, and Everything, M2M was broken up by Atlantic Records in September 2002.

She released her debut album, Under the Surface, in Norway on March 6. The first single, Don’t Save Me , made radio impact on January 3, 2006, and quickly climbed into the top ten on many Norwegian charts and playlists. After the physical single release on February 6, 2006, Don’t Save Me jumped to #1 on the official Norwegian singles chart in its second week of availability, and then spent five consecutive weeks in the top spot. The second single released from the album was the title track Under the Surface. The video was released May 10, 2006, and within a month the single became the most widely played track on Norwegian radio.

Only a Fool was the third single from the album but it spent only two weeks on the charts and was only a radio release. The heartbreakingly painful Solid Ground was the last single from the CD. It was released in March, 2007 and after several weeks, it reached #1 on Norwegian Radio Charts without needing the promotion of a music video.
